"In the DS remake, the player must send a Mognet letter to each character in the game, as well as one to another person playing Final Fantasy III."

It isn't enough to send only one letter to another person. I don't know how many are required, but I know from personal experience that one isn't enough, and some people say seven. The strategy guide says there must be seven exchanges for each FFIII denizen. Does that include the four exchanges with the denizen? If so, then only three are needed with other players. For example, to get the Onion Knight a person would need to send four letters to Topapa, and three to other players.

"Afterwards, the player must send 4 letters to Topapa"

If the person has already sent a letter to each character, as stated in the previous sentence, then she only needs to send three more to Topapa.

I don't have the real stats. I've asked in some of the forums, and the responses so far have not cleared things up for me. It would take many hours to do the experimentation needed to settle the question, and I don't have that much free time.

I tried sending letters only to Topapa, and to another person, and I couldn't get more than two responses from Topapa without writing to one of the other denizens.

The stats of the Onion Knight aren't at all that great. But when it reaches level 91 to 99, they grow wildly making it max out in every stat, even HP to 9999, plus they can equip any weapon and armor including the most powerful of the game, being the Onion equipment, and use every spell in the game as well as summons, making them the best job in the game.

Mognet[edit source]

In the European version you need to send 4 mail to Topapa and 7 to a friend playing the game. Should I change it or ad it in? 1stclasswarrior 20:36, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time[edit source]

The Onion Knight makes a cameo appearance in the latest Crystal Chronicles title as a set of armor known as the Onion Armor.

Final Fantasy Anthology[edit source]

Should there be a mention of the Onion Knight appearing as a FF6 style sprite sometimes on the loading screen for Final Fantasy Anthology? Red Silvers 05:07, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Are they related?[edit source]

In the DS remake all four heroes are 14, orphans, separated from biological parents as a result of the same crash and all come from the lower world. are they quadruplets? cause the game is certainly implying it! (By the way added this here as opposed to asking the same question on all four of their pages and I suppose it would apply to these guys too.)SandS Hero 01:30, November 14, 2010 (UTC)

No. In this Wiki's summarization of the story, Luneth falls down a hole, finds Wind Crystal, finds the 3 other lovable protagonists, they beat the poo out of Cloud of Darkness, blah, blah, blah, Happy Ending! However...:
"He and his childhood friend, Arc, wanted to save the ghosts in the town of Kazu." He's known him all his life, and refers to him as a friend. Same thing on the instruction manuel (that is, Arc's brief description refers to Luneth as a friend). However, that just rules out quadruplets. Perhaps Luneth, Refia, and Ingus are... triplets !! ... That's just plain unlikely. However, that's just a summary/instruction manuel. But ...
Cid refers to Luneth's (and the rest of the orphan's) biological parents as his biological parents, moreover, he doesn't refer to Luneth's/Arc's/Refia's/Ingus' parents as their parents. So, they have individual parents, and are not twins/triplets/quadruplets. So yeah, that's the final nail in the coffin. I truly do hope that explanation helped. 00:25, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

Equipment Stats[edit source]

The table wasn't looking right in Chrome so I went to fix it, and it occurred to me - why are we listing them on the FF3 job pages anyway? We have the equipment lists for that. Why not just do what the FF1 and FF6 and maybe a few others do, and just note the specific equipment types the job can use, or barring that list the equipment but not the stats? Seems a big waste of space and coding to me. Doreiku Kuroofangu 16:56, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

I'm all for freeing up a bit of space. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 16:57, July 27, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah. FFV's Job pages and FFXII's License Board page doesn't cover it... why should the FFIII page? C A T U S E 19:35, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

GRRM influenced by FFIII?[edit source]

As fans of the Song of Ice and Fire novels or the Game of Thrones television show may know, Ser Davos Seaworthy is referred to as "The Onion Knight" due to his act of smuggling said root vegetables into a castle during a siege, fending off starvation for those within. Any chance George R. R. Martin took the title from this series? He's known to be a fan of video games...

That's a pretty funny idea. Onion Knight is pretty emblematic to Final Fantasy and seems to be the first use of it by a quick googling. Someone on reddit suggested onion knight refers to the onions representing poverty, and the knight representing nobility, making an onion knight...a poor knight? an oxymoron? Maybe intended like that in Song of Ice and Fire but who knows about Final Fantasy.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 20:50, February 28, 2017 (UTC)
